Living room features TV, Playstation, and lots of DVDs and Blu-Rays to watch if you opt for quiet night indoors
Offered for sublet is my comfortable, tastefully decorated and super convenient guest room.
Details about the room:
The full sized bed was purchased brand new in spring 2013, and it's really comfortable.
Waiting for you will be clean linens and extra blankets if you need them. Plenty of pillows and towels too, of course.
The room is super quiet; at the back of the apartment, facing a courtyard (not a street) and shielded by greenery.
The room isn't huge as you can see, but the rest of the apartment is open, inviting, and yours to enjoy during your entire visit.
Details about the apartment:
This is possibly the most conveniently-located apartment in all of Cobble Hill / Boerum Hill! You'll be less than half a block away from the subway. Specifically, the F and G trains. The F train will get you to Manhattan in four stops. You can be in the West Village in less than 20 minutes!
You'll have full access to the entire apartment including the dining room table that seats four, and the comfortable living room complete with hundreds of DVD and Blu-Rays you can watch. The kitchen is yours as much as you need it - cook entire meals or just store your leftovers, whatever you prefer.
The bathroom we will share is pretty big for NYC standards (bath AND shower) and the water pressure is great. Oh, and it stays hot!
The apartment has two air conditioners (though there is NOT one inside this room). Also, heat in my building is controlled by the tenant so in winter months you're never too hot or too cold!
We keep the apartment immaculate and clutter free, so you can be guaranteed a homey but very clean space.
We have two very friendly, sweet cats that were born in February 2014. They are not allowed into this guest bedroom, but you'll definitely run into them in the common areas.
I am an 8-year resident of NYC. I work in market research in midtown. I live now in the apartment with my fiance Josh who is a filmmaker. We love watching movies, walking around the neighborhood, discovering local cafes and restaurants, reading, etc.
Both of us will be there (sleeping in the master bedroom) during your stay but we won't be disturbed if you wake up early, come home late, etc. We're both quiet, accommodating, friendly, flexible, and can't wait to tell you all about our beautiful neighborhood and help you have a wonderful stay in NYC.
I prefer guests message me first before booking a reservation. I will do my best to reply quickly!
Our apartment is on the border of Boerum Hill and Cobble Hill, which gives you instant access to all the great shopping, bars and restaurants along Smith Street and Court Street. Enjoy brunch on the weekends, enticing happy hours on weekday evenings, stores that sell handmade pillows, one of a kind greeting cards, candles, comfy shoes, jewelry, and more. There's even a specialty DVD rental store.
If you're bringing a car, it's pretty easy (for NYC anyway) to find street parking. Plus, there are plenty of lots nearby.
If you're looking for a little glitz and glamour during your visit, keep your eyes pealed for Allesandro Nivola, Keri Russell, Hope Davis, Tony Shalhoub, Ethan Hawke and more - they all live in the neighborhood!
You could not imagine an apartment more conveniently located to the subway. People love this the most about our place. There is no chance of getting lost, and you are "home" the second you step off the train!
No smoking in the apartment, please.
I'll ask that you be very quiet in the hallways since I live in a very small building with only two other tenants and it's important they not be disturbed.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Dorothyàs place for 9 days and we would definitely go back...right now! Dorothy was super nice and welcoming and we had a long email thread even before meeting about best places to visit/things to do in NYC. The space wehad in the flat was perfect and weàve ven enjoyed staying home for a couple of nighs, watching movies from the massive DVDs collection Dorothy has. No need to say the two cats Gracie and Lester were the superstars of the flat.
Subway literally at 10 steps from the door.
Quiet room in a great location. Dorothy was travelling while I was in Brooklyn, but I got all the information needed and her friend Josh - and the two cats - made me feel welcome. Josh even made me chili on the evening of 'the blizzard that wasn't', when NYC for once shut down. Great local tips from Dorothy, 61 Local a bit further down on Bergen St is a real find whether it's for a relaxed coffee in the morning or a great craft beer at night. Other great places I can recommend a bit further afield in Brooklyn: Allswell in Williamsburg and Vinegar Hill House next to the Navy Yards.
Lauren and I had a wonderful time while in NYC this past weekend! The apartment was just as it is listed--bright and welcoming. Dorothy and Josh's place is LITERALLY at the subway stop, you leave the building and voila, the trains are at your disposal. They are also in a very vibrant neighborhood with shopping and restaurants right around the corner, Josh was quick to give several recommendations and he was spot on every time!
We didn't get the chance to meet Dorothy as she was out of town but Josh was fantastic and always available if we had questions. The room itself was clean, cozy, and had everything you could need. There were books for exploring both the touristy stuff but also the things off the beaten path. We both felt very welcomed and would definitely recommend staying here if you plan to visit NYC/Brooklyn!! The kittie love from Gracie and Lester was marvelous!!!
Ficamos 6 dias no apt da Dorothy, nossa experiência foi boa, tivemos liberdade para usar o que precisavamos. Ficamos muito a vontade mesmo quando ela estava em casa. Tivemos a oportunidade de conhecer e conversar um pouco com o namorado dela, uma vez que ele não fica muito no apto. O bairro é ótimo, nós particularmente adoramos essa parte do Brooklyn próxima a downtown, cheio de lojas e restaurantes (uma deli bem proxima e lavanderia também). Voce pode chegar a Dumbo caminhando por 15 minutos, e o metro das linhas F e G em 10 passos. Enfim, o espaço é fiel às fotos, recomendo.
Dorothy and Josh were very welcoming. The place is just as described . . . very comfortable and a breeze to get to. The cats were awesome too! I had a greate experience and would stay with them again.
Dorothy did a great job of making my husband and I feel welcome! She was accommodating to our delayed arrival and was happy to offer suggestions on local attractions and restaurants. Our room was comfortable and warm. The proximity to the subway made this an awesome location for anyone intending to stick to public transportation. This was a great place to stay!

I've lived in NYC for eight years. I recently moved from the West Village to the Cobble Hill / Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn and I absolutely love it.
My biggest interests are movies and travel and I try to combine the two as much as possible.
I work in entertainment market research.
I love helping people have a great visit to NYC, so if you have any questions about what to do or see or how to get around, I'm happy to assist!
